Korea, 1950: A green lieutenant. A ruthless enemy. A heart-rending choice that will haunt him the rest of his life. If he lives.
When Communist North Korea launches a surprise invasion of the South, Lt. Jonas Stuyvesant finds himself leading his platoon against a well-trained, battle-hardened army. Soviet-made tanks break through the American lines. Jonas and his men are forced to retreat down the Peninsula, fighting a rear-guard action.
Backed against an unforgiving sea with no hope of relief, his shell-shocked troops hunker down for a suicidal last stand. Grasping for any way to save the remnants of his platoon, Jonas strikes a surprise blow against the North Koreans. When the enemy hurls a massive counterattack at him, Jonas is caught in the vise: be overrun or make an unthinkable sacrifice.
